No need to be sorry: I am generally quite happy with the great new
release, and I did personally find the way to re-enable Lynx-like motion
- I just want others to have an even greater experience :-)

Put something like the following in debian/mc.NEWS:
mc (3:4.8.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Config files have been reorganized.
Some settings (e.g. Lynx-like motion) have moved to new "Panel
options" and accidentally reset to their default value.

NB! Notice how version and timestamp match prior packaging release, as
the NEWS entry is tied to that even if stuffed in now afterwards.

Yes: currently you only exposed the new release to users of unstable.
Issue a new packaging release within 10 days and users of testing will
be helped by e.g. a NEWS entry; issue it later than that and still users
of the upcoming stable release of Debian will benefit from the hint.
